This is blackmail of independentists

Las Cortes of Aragon They rejected the transfer of basins to the Ebro River in Catalonia this Thursday. Yes, in a weird way. Up to four non-statutory proposals are presented on the same subject: from PAR, Chunta, PSOE, and government partners PP and Vox.

All in opposition to the intentions of the Generalitat, which, for several weeks, has set alarm bells among the Aragonese because of the new ambitions of the secessionists, on this occasion, in the waters of the Ebro River. This is blackmail by the independentists, and if someone sends blackmail, the blackmailer will ask for more,” said the spokesperson of the PP in the Cortes, Fernando Ledesma.

The crossing of the Ebro River in Aragon is a sacred thing in the community. Not for anything, in this region of the day when 100,000 people took to the streets on April 23, 1993, to strongly express their opposition to the transfer of the Ebro, coinciding with Aragon Day.

A milestone that has scared all the Aragonese politicians is that they could be linked to an initiative to end the transfer. Also, Vox, despite criticism from the opposition, pointed out that the leader, Santiago Abascal, supports the transfer of Ebro.

“We continue to ask for a National Hydrographic Plan “that looks after the national interest and each autonomous community, based on what they can offer, Mr. Sánchez, and that thinks of the interconnection of the basins to take advantage of the excess water when there is excess water in the debit basins,” he defended, highlighting its consequences in the primary sector.

“This is radical environmentalism and globalist policies in Brussels destroying agriculture and livestock in Europe,” he added. Therefore, Vox opposes the rest of the motions presented by the rest of the left.

This is also done by the PP, which assesses that the remaining proposals do not refer to the Water Pact works as “important,” as defended by Ledesma. Furthermore, he defends that the person behind it is an “order” of the independents «to get the Ebro in its Catalan section.

Position of the Courts

The PP pointed out that the PSOE has no credibility in its opinions, and it is shameful that they have removed the tagline “for productive purposes” from his motion against the transfer.

As stated in the original draft, which left open “the transfers for the mouth of the water,” as they approved in 2008, “a transfer of water from the Ebro in Aragon to Barcelona,” the government of the former president of Spain, José Luis RodrígZapatero across, the head of the Executive of Aragon, Marcelino Iglesias, and the Generalitat of Catalonia, Jesus Mont, la,

The socialists defended themselves by saying “that they are always against the transfers of the Ebro.” “Wherever it comes from, we reject the transfer,” said the spokesman for the Chunta Aragonesista (CHA). Jesus Palacin. The United Left defended its move along the same lines.

“We stopped the transfer once, and we have to stop it again. “We are against any transfer to the Ebro because Aragon is dying of thirst, said President Jorge Azcó. Alberto Izquierdo, leader of the Aragonese Party (PAR).

Origin of the controversy

The controversy on this occasion began with the falsetto town of Priotat (Tarragona), when the Minister of Climate Action of the Generalitat of Catalonia, David Maskortan, announced on January 14 that his government intends to transfer water from the Ebro to two reservoirs in Prioryto “to be able to see the economic activities of the region.”

Not content with that, Mascort declared that the Ebro Hydrographic Confederation (CHE) knows these plans so that he can get into the next planning and that they see it with “good eyes.” Something that CHE denied in a statement, saying that the transfer was not part of its plans to prepare for plan 2022-2027 and that he also did not know the proposal.

Everyone could have stayed there if not for the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Riberawhere the CHE finally relied, said three days later in Murcia that “it is not ruled out that emergencies and emergency measures must be taken.”

The transfer from Aragon to Catalonia: “Blackmail”

The PP and Vox focused on the “blackmail” to which the independentists subjected the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, forcing the transfer of the Ebro “for political purposes.

As defended by both parties, it is necessary that the groups represented in the Cortes of Aragon «create a common front” so that the Aragonese do not see that their rights are reduced compared to other communities with the said transfer.

The president of Aragon, Jorge Azcon, repeated several times in recent days that “in Aragon there is not enough water.” The Chief Executive traveled with the Minister of Agriculture, Ángel Samper, to Monegros this Monday to show that the community needs water.

For this reason, the partners of the government put forward a motion that promotes «during drought, which, as they defend in the text, “puts at risk the survival due to the lack of water not only in many Aragonese agricultural properties but also in our main sector in general, important as an actor in the economic development of our community and also to establish the population and fight against depopulation.

While the left attacked Vox and the PP for not having clear positions as a party, in the Region of Murcia and the Valencian Community, which also governs the coalition, they defended a common water policy in Spain in response to water needs. Also Andalusia.

The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, asked for a national agreement this Wednesday on Antena 3, criticizing Minister Ribera, whom he accused of managing his ministry based on political and non-technical criteria. At the same time, he considered that the hydrographic confederations don’t have a job.

PP and Vox against the transfer of the Ebro to Aragon

In the way that the Cortes of Aragon expressed their rejection of the proposal of the Generalitat of Catalonia about “the extraction of water from the Ebro hydrographic basin for new irrigation,” criticizing the Ebro river, “it cannot be a currency in any bilateral negotiations for partisan purposes.

Likewise, the approved motion rejects the use of politics in the Ebro Hydrographic Confederation “to guarantee the vote of the independents of central government management.

In addition, the Cortes urged the Government of Aragon to encourage the Government of Spain to “promote the envisaged hydraulic works.” of the Water Pact to guarantee the hydraulic reserve of 5.550 Hm, which is included in the Statute of Autonomy. It also “immediately” promotes the development of these works because it is “an engine” of the Aragonese economy.
